It need 7 hours drive from Jakarta to Ujung Genteng and after Sukabumi the road is horrible. There are many lodges there, mostly is traditional belongs to local but there is also good hotel. The beach is beautiful and very natural. But I think the best in Ujung Genteng is turtle. After long and tiring journey, everything was paid off after we saw baby turtle swim into the sea for the first time. The Conservation will release baby turtle twice a day on 8 AM and 5 PM depend on weather. In the evening we can see the turtle spawn. Ask your hotel or lodge staff to ask for the information from the Conservation about the time of turtle release and spawn and make sure you arrive on time or you'll miss the greatest moment. From your hotel or lodge you better use "ojek" (motorbike) because the road is very bad. It take about 5-10 minutes from lodging area. You can ask to the lodge or hotel staff to find motorbike.
